Norwood's # could tip off staff putting him at DE

34 posts in this topic

Why would he be #92 if they were not leaning towards him being an DE. His college number 40 is available, yet he did not get it. Sounds like the coaching staff might want to put him on the line.

He's just the right size for a Meeks DE.

Except linebackers can have numbers 90-99...

Yea, but he could have gotten #40 if he was going to be a pure linebacker..think this shows that the staff is at least considering putting him on the line

there was already a article on panthers.com saying he would be used as a edge rusher from time to time as a DE, but he will be a OLB

Pretty sure I read a quote of Fox saying they were initially having him at SLB.

With Hardy, Brown, Johnson, Brayton & Taylor I have a hard time believing he will migrate to the defensive line, unless we pick up an extra linebacker

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
